Rare Euginenia and Achacha fruit in Socal?
« on: October 10, 2018, 06:24:20 PM »
So I have felt very inspired by reading recent posts about the "Rain Forest Plum" Euginenia Candolleana and Achacha, Garcinia Humilis. I am looking for any of the other Socal guys to speak up and give any use full info they have gathered from growing and fruiting these trees? Microclimate, fertilization, soil type, sun, how long it took to fruit? I was thinking of starting these from seed and keeping them in pots for maybe two years before planting them in a protected spot in the yard with the best humidity. Do you guys think that seeds that are from plants grown in California would have a better chance than seeds ordered from Hawaii?
If anyone has any other recommendations on the other different rare Eugenia's that I should be trying please let me know.
If anyone has plants or seeds for sale that is local I would really appreciate a private message, thanks.
Erik

Planted 4 from seed a few years ago. Slow growing. Some variability. One just started flowering.

Nice cool to see you have flowers coming! What seeds did you plant and where did you get the seeds? post some pics.
